A poison gas leak which spread from Sydney to Melbourne is kept quiet in case it 'panics' people. What did they expect the public to do if they knew? Evacuate the area? Sounds quite sensible actually - better anyway than exposing people to the risk.
What else are they not telling us?
Then, of course, there is the coming Sun storm which is expected to hit with the 'force of 100 million hydrogen bombs.
I can only speculate that - given the cover up of the gas - the real dangers of this solar storm could be infinitely more frightening than they are admitting. Time, as they say, will tell.
One thing strikes me about this report though:
They claim satellites will be aged by 50 years, rendering GPS even more useless than ever
Just love that point - rendering GPS even more useless than ever. Now there are no state secrets in that one!
